I'm 33 weeks pregnant with my fourth. Last Wednesday my midwife gave me some nitrazine test strips to test for amniotic fluid, because I have been bothered by wetness and had a slow leak in an earlier pregnancy. The strip came back positive for amniotic fluid, so she gave me a game plan to follow -- regular checks of baby's heartrate, drinking lots of water, keeping very clean, vit c, etc etc. My midwife is now out of town for a month, but on Tuesday I'll be seeing a midwife who attended my last birth.
What I'm wondering now is, how accurate are these test strips? Could it be something else, or nothing at all? I tested again today and it came back positive again. Has anyone else had a positive test strip, but it turned out not to be amniotic fluid?
